« Part 75: Grill / Griddle Table Pt. 1 Part 76 of Misc. Shop Stuff series Part 77: Blackstone Table, Final »

Left off here.

No plan to go off of, so I gathered a wide piece of stock, added a front to prevent sagging and to hide the shelf cleats, then cleaned it all up.

Set it in place.

Don’t like it, cleat visible. Make a board wider? Why not.

Pulled clamps, cleaned up faces with the jr. jack, and brought completed project over to the grilling area.

Wife wants base painted black. Ugh. That 10% will have to wait. This will get a project post soon, thanks for looking.

Kinda like a Nicholson grilling’ workbench!

Nicely done Smitty

That sure came together quickly, Smitty! Amazing what a guy can get done when he’s not working on a dozen different things at once. ;-)

I love the way you recycle. It’s really adds to the projects

Thanks for the comments. The splayed legs give it nicholson feel! Done quickly, and at zero material cost! :-)

In use! Butterfly chicken w/ swiss, onion and pepper garnish, grilled potatoes. Yum! And, room to work!

That’s a great table. Reminds me of Roy Underhill’s French workbench, which I have often admired. Great stuff. :)

The shelf really solidified the piece.

Always fun to see your work and process, thank you man.

Key design point. Not shelf, no piece.

I can see a vice mounted to that!
But do it while she sleeps…
Looks just wonderful Smitty.
Best thoughts,
